Signs of Parental Alienation
Parental alienation can be sometimes difficult for parents to identify. Divorce is almost always a significant transition for children and it's normal for a family to experience some temporary changes in its internal relationships. However, there are telltale signs that, if consistent and pronounced over time, can be indicative of a deliberate attempt to hinder a child's relationship with one parent.
Common indicators that child has experienced parental alienation include:
- Uncharacteristic disrespect (including insults, swearing, etc.)
- Echoed behaviors or words of the other parent
- Refusals to keep in regular contact (emails, phone calls, etc.)
- Negative attitudes towards the affected parent's extended family
- Knowledge of issues between parents that did not involve the child
- Destruction of gifts given to the child by the affected parent
- High Conflict Child Custody Cases in Texas
- The Dirty Trick of Using Children as Weapons in Your Texas Divorce
- Parental Alienation and its effect on Texas families
